One Park West, Liverpool

A highly complex £70 million residential anchor building, part of Grosvenor’s flagship £1 billion Liverpool One project, delivered three months ahead of program.

One Park West is a £70 million residential building defining the elliptical park at the heart of Grosvenors £1 billion Liverpool One mixed use development. As executive architects, Brock Carmichael worked collaboratively with concept architects Pelli Clarke Pelli and contractor partner Laing O’Rourke to ensure the vision of Cesar Pelli’s concept was realised in the completed building.

The challenges were immense. A naturally ventilated, South facing, fully glazed building on the edge of an urban motorway within a marine environment required real time research and development with specialist subcontractors, including technical analysis, computer modelling and laboratory testing. Brock Carmichael adopted modern methods of construction, offsite manufacturing, lean management tools and shared IT aligned to DFMA principles to deliver this signature building within 21 months – three months ahead of programme.
